Holistic Birth Support
Simply Rooted Wellness offers holistic birth support and maternal support to Tulsa and surrounding areas. Our doulas are trained and certifying with DONA International ready to serve families during this intimate time in their life.
SRW's Holistic Birth Approach:
Birth is ceremonial. It is an ancient tradition. It’s been done for thousands of years and sometimes as humans in a modern world, we sterilize and complicate the knowing wisdom of the human body.
A message from your Doula:
As your Doula, my calling is to create an environment that makes space for you to feel respected, cared for, and witnessed. There is no way to predict how each birth will unfold, but I am here to help encourage a thriving birthing person and a thrive newborn no matter where the birth experience takes you.
What is a doula?
The modern word "doula" stems from the Greek word "doule" which means a female servant or handmaid. Today this term is used trained professional who offers guidance and provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to families before, during, and shortly after childbirth. A doula has many roles, including advocating for you, encouraging and helping you fulfill specific desires you might have for your birth, maintaining your birth plan, and keeping you informed and supported if unexpected changes to your birth plan should arise. We provide you with individual support during labor and delivery from start to finish with comfort measures and pain relief techniques that include breathing, relaxation, massage, and laboring positions. We also work with your partner, reassuring them and guiding them in the ways they can comfort you.
What are the benefits?
Research has demonstrated the benefits of hiring a doula include having better birth outcomes. Expectant mothers are two times less likely to experience a birth complication involving themselves or their baby. In addition, the information and encouragement communicated to a mother from a doula throughout pregnancy has been found to increase the mother’s self-efficacy and ability to impact her own pregnancy and birth outcomes.

When continuous labor support was provided by a doula, women experienced:
31% decrease in the use of Pitocin.
28% decrease in the risk of C-section.
12% increase in the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth.
9% decrease in the use of any medications for pain relief.
14% decrease in the risk of newborns being admitted to a special care nursery.
34% decrease in dissatisfaction with the birth experience.
